Perfect Pearls!

100_5459(1) Well people … you will be pleased to hear that I got through the rest of Monday without drama and boy did I sleep well last night! So this morning I am full of the joys of Spring!

Which leads me nicely on to my rather Spring like card! Did you see what I did there? With the link? You know like one Spring to another! I may have discovered a new talent … for links … I am thinking a job in breakfast TV maybe … sat on the red sofa with Bill!!!

This card was THE BEST FUN to make …The stamps are indeed THE Wendy Vecchi … with lots of sprays and stains … the Lord Tim of Holtz variety of course … you know Tim … the man that can give the Pied Piper a run for his money while driving the US Presidents car over lumps and bumps in the road without banking it with just a spritz of Perfect Pearls Mist and a swoosh of Distress Stain.100_5457(1) I know the card looks a bit dark in the picture … but that was the best way to photograph it to get the Perfect Pearls mist to show up!

It is a good job I blogged today … I cannot be the only one that loses track of the date … had I not blogged I would n’t have realised it is my friend’s birthday tomorrow … that has added a few items to my to do list I can tell you … I have n’t even got her present yet … worse still … I have no clue what I am going to buy! Anyone got any ideas? … she is n’t crafty … which is a huge shame … because then I would know exactly what to get!

Don’t forget to check out the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week if you get time … we are doing an Ode to THE Wendy Vecchi’s style … I have seen a few comments where some are worried they cannot enter because they don’t have any THE Wendy Vecchi stamps … as shocking as that is to me to hear … I can confirm that you really can do The whole Wendy thing with any stamp you like!

Right … I am away …
